NORRIS Skips, based in Orpington, is a well-established commercial waste business operating three waste transfer stations across London. With leading recycling rates in the area the company also offers services including skip hire, RORO, waste collections and specialises in turning construction waste into aggregates for re-use in the building trade.
For materials rehandling work across its site in Brixton, Norris Skips uses a Claas 756 Scorpion telehandler; which has just been converted to 24” cushion solid tyres courtesy of OTR tyre supplier, Tyre Boss Ltd, who also supplied a set of distinctive Claas red painted wheels. The tyres have been purchased to minimise the possibility of tyre damage and punctures from skip debris.
Peter Norris, Director of Norris Skips, contacted Tyre Boss, via LinkedIn, to request a quote for the conversion and was impressed by the quick turnaround from order to delivery. He said: “Tyre Boss is a new supplier to us and I am very impressed with the service from the initial enquiry through to the exchange on site. Wayne has exceptional knowledge of solid tyres and even came to Brixton to see how the tyres are performing and to check we were happy with the service. I will certainly be using Tyre Boss for my future tyre requirements.”
Tyre Boss Sales Manager, Wayne Collins, was very happy to receive the enquiry after uploading a post on LinkedIn.
“We try to make it easy for customers to contact us on their preferred channels –whether that is phone, social media, email or via the website,” he said. “It’s great to see that our efforts are paying off with this direct enquiry and highlights how vital it is to us to be present across every media as that is where our customers are too. It was a pleasure to work with Norris Skips; a company that is dedicated to recycling as much waste as possible.”
